Naomi Hamilton supported Ultra with the appointment of a newly created Senior Corporate Communications Manager, operating at Group level from their London office. Naomi worked closely with Gabby Colley, Head of IR and Communications, to shape what was a business-critical role and a key hire for Gabby.

The role required a candidate with an integrated approach to communications, working across many different disciplines of the function internationally, to drive internal and external communications. This was a business-critical role to drive the communications for a business wide transformation programme, alongside corporate and financial communications strategies. Naomi utilised hers and tml Partner’s corporate affairs network, alongside a proactive search to provide Ultra with a comprehensive candidate shortlist.

Commenting on her experience working with Naomi at tml Partners, Gabby said;

“tml Partners were excellent from the very first call. They understood exactly what I was looking for, helped me shape the job description and provided me with a great range of candidates. Naomi was very attentive and had excellent contacts in both IR and Communications. I’d highly recommend both her and tml.”
